During Education Week (October 21-25) students and staff at the Preeceville School were acknowledged for all their hard work.
This year, the theme of Education Week focused on working and learning together, along with Saskatchewan Library Week, building the future.
Education Week is a time to celebrate student success and recognize dedicated education professionals across the province.
This year’s theme highlights the role of education in building futures both as individuals and as a province. It also emphasizes the importance of a collaborative and inclusive approach to learning, said the Saskatchewan Education website.
